U Street Corridor — 8.7/10 Rating (based on 11 neighborhood reviews)
The immediate surrounding neighborhood is brand new and lively. The Shaw/ U Street Neighborhood in general can still be a bit gritty, like many parts of the city, but it’s undergoing lots of new construction, with new restaurants and retail stores popping up. Overall, I’ve felt very safe living here in the city and in my complex.

Pros: Trader Joes (3 minute walk), Wholefoods (10 minute walk), Target (15 minute walk) nearby, social with numerous bars within 5 minute walking distance, young, safe (I never feel unsafe walking alone because the streets are well lit and people are always out), very metro accessible.

Cons: Expensive (rent, food, everything), sometimes crowded (bars are often too crowded on Friday and Saturday night.

There are a bunch of restaurants and bars in the area, so that is a major plus. The area is also right next to Meridian Hill Park, so you have easy access to a lot of outdoor space. Depending on the exact location of the building, there can be a lot of noise, but the area is overall safe.

The Ellington is located 3 blocks from the local police station, making the neighborhood feel very safe. As there are many bars, restaurants, and music venues in the area, it can become noise on the weekends.

There are not many grocery stores nearby, but there is a great Chinese Restaurant down the street. The neighborhood is probably one of the safest places in DC.

Although, noisy, the U street corridor is by far the only place I'd want to live in DC. Yes, the area is in serious need of some parking garages but between the convenience and amazing nightlife this area has it all.

Close to work, but no nearby grocery stores. However, there is a great Chinese restaurant down the road from my apartment. Probably one of the safest places in DC.

Very busy on the weekends but lots of things to do and places to eat. It can get noisy, but it's nice to have a Trader Joes at the heart of it all.
